  1. British ambassador:
    I hereby resign because the queen has told me that the big baby is throwing a tantrum.

  2. In the UK they resign for telling the truth, while in the US they get a job and stay only, if they are able to lie for that big orange clown… :-/

      @Fur Ball, Yet he’s a billionaire, I’m a millionaire, and you’re a loser. Investments require money which comes from having to work. Removing the regulations and providing a tax cut to stimulate the economy is the ONLY reason this economy has taken off. As for your claims of not paying contractors, thats just biased NEWS media propaganda that fits your hateful narrative. I’ve never known any CEO with 10k+ people to be the one responsible for dealing with the review of daily contractor work and payment. Maybe that’s the way you run your 1 man BS franchise, but not the rest of the world. LOL!

      @Roger Out , It’s clear that school was a low priority for you. However “try” doing a little bit of reading on the NATO budget. Specifically the %’s that other countries contribute to it, and how often their behind on paying even that.

    • @Liberal Genius a bit more detail needed here.

    • @Jonathan Pasch that is so unlikely. Would be interested in why you think that it might be true.

    He would rather resign than defer his observation of trump than apologize. Good for him!

  4. Why, all he did was tell the truth about the trump administration .
    trump had a hisse fit and the U.K. caved.

    • @William H gosh.

    • @Mister Morgan well, that was the only thing that happened that mattered ever in the history of the world. Can’t think that’s likely.

    This man spoke the truth and the next ambassador should do the same. Trump is a brainless twit.

  6. That’s what honorable men and women do, unlike the trump clan

      Damn son, don’t call yourself English if you can’t speak or write it properly.

    • @Manoj Jacob …and you can apply at the same time…

    • @MLK’s Conservative Ghost I see that’s your fallback comment for when you have absolutely nothing to offer in reply.

      Typical fucking Conservative prick, full of empty bluster and only capable deflection.

  7. Some people resign on a point of honor, an alien concept to American politicians.

    Why did he resign? He should have stayed and demanded a medal!

  9. He resigned for being totally right. He says what he said about Trump and wasn’t wrong.

    • @Juanita Flores Which do you want, drain the swamp or Trump 2020? Make up your mind, jeez

    • @Juanita Flores You know he’d send you back to your Latino “shithole” in a heartbeat?

    • many republicans in congress see trump the same way, but keep their mouths shut because they always have the next election coming up,,

    • @Earnest T Bass crying because you inbred cult members are more patriotic to russia than you are to the united states ,for never calling russia out on their election meddling ..
      mueller statement from may…read the last paragraph.
      “As alleged by the grand jury in an indictment, Russian intelligence officers who were part of the Russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system. … And at the same time, as the grand jury alleged in a separate indictment, a private Russian entity engaged in a social media operation where Russian citizens posed as Americans in order to interfere in the election.”

      “They used sophisticated cyber techniques to hack into computers and networks used by the Clinton campaign. They stole private information, and then released that information through fake online identities and through the organization WikiLeaks. The releases were designed and timed to interfere with our election and to damage a presidential candidate.”

      “The order appointing me Special Counsel authorized us to investigate actions that could obstruct the investigation. … As set forth in our report, after that investigation, if we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that.”

      @UCNQZXTbtfwD9putohc1sIBQ I am sorry he was a diplomat and his job was to represent United Kingdom in United States. Instead of co-ordinate meetings, attending parties and banquets and giving speeches, he was behaving like he was sent to colonial India to judge the performance of the British viceroy.

      I hate to tell you but I am a US citizen of Argentinian origin. All of the Latin American countries sided with our beloved Argentina on the issue of Isla de Melvinas, except for treacherous Chile. I think that Regan administration betrayed Munroe doctrine by not helping Argentina. That alone highlights the special relationship between US and UK.

  10. Fired for observing the obvious? Tell us something we don’t know! Inept? Fraud? Con Man? Hand Maiden to Banon.

    This man did his job and spoke the truth. More ridiculous fallout from the most corrupt presidency in US history.

    • @Ver Coda Because the majority of Democrats especially the ones that post here are HOMOSEXUAL such as yourself. Do you prefer the greasy SCHMEG paste or the infected penis hole syrup?

    • @Yes or Yes You can’t put a label on common sense HOG CHUG.

    • William H uneducated is what you are. Bye!

      @Jonathan Herbert You’re 200% correct. Diplomats send information that isn’t always flattering all the time. And it’s supposed to be classified, or at least confidential. This isn’t a matter of confronting Trump about it, Earnest. It’s a matter of state, and the good ambassador had the obligation to do it! Good grief, billions of other humans have reached the same darn conclusion about the Dimwit in the Oval. This is hardly breaking news!

      You’re obviously as stupid as Trump. Maybe even more so since he’s strung you morons along, and you follow willingly.
      You’re more interested in sucking him off than being a patriot of this great country.

    Emperor Orange can not tolerate criticism he himself did not dictate.

  14. Like any True Blue Bully, Trump dishes it out but he can’t take it

    The ambassador’s resignation doesn’t change the fact that #45 is perceived as inept and incompetent.

  16. Breaking News… The next Ambassador we Brits appoint will think that Trump is inept as well.

    • @Elkslayer Would you like to discuss “fake news”? I stopped believing accusations about Trump right around the time the pageant girls came out. Having been in the pageant circle, I have personal knowledge. There ARE NO private dressing rooms. You dress in your personal hotel room. The public rooms, which is the only place these encounters could have happened, are just that- PUBLIC. For all contestants. Had that happened, there would have been about 30 witnesses.

    • @Elkslayer Needless to say, no one dresses in there, BECAUSE they are public. Hair & make-up are done in the public rooms, that’s it….

    • @Elkslayer If someone was in any state of undress in the public rooms, it was by choice and someone’s mom or coach lands right on it immediately and makes them go the bathroom.

    • Mj light 👍👍👍

  17. So somebody dared to tell the emperor he has no clothes (…or clue…or class, for that matter). His assessment was accurate.

  18. It was his duty to give an evaluation, that he did. The bully complains, for the good of his country, he goes home. And the Republican party runs home, hides, as this President makes a mockery of our democracy.

    That saying is really true,”The Truth Hurts “

  20. Having to resign because he got caught speaking his mind but Trump spews garbage daily about everyone. Not fair!!
